Good friends of TN. I present/display to you bawls it. It is the time of the fervor of the red deer (cervus elaphus). In this case, after days of absolute superiority, the great male was cripple and was lost one of cuernas in a fight. Even so, he continued defending his harem, and he did not leave any other male one approached, he continued being the king, although foreseeably shortly it will appear another unit, better armed, without fatigue, that surely that after a ferocious and noble combat, will move away it of the females to replace it. It is the law of life and one of the principles of the evolution. Most powerful the best one is prepared to continue the species. He has been impresinante to see like in so bad physical training conditionses, never yielded nor a single meter to other competitors. I hope that you like.

Hola José Luis,
Gracias por mostrarnos esta berrea, que todavía no he visto en persona, y eso que me pillan cerca.
Buena composción y colores muy naturales.
Un saludo, José M.

Hi Jose,
This is an excellent catch with those red deers in the same frame. I like this composition a lot with two of them looking at you :-) Details and exposure are really nice. Great action shot! Thanks,

Wonderful shot. I took one of a stag yesterday getting ready for the rutting season. I love the composition here with the placing of the 3 deer. I like the eye contact of the females and the action of the male



Yes, this is the best time to spot deers.
I love your shot, compo overall.
Deatiled and sharpness, too.


Cool shot Jose, an interesting composition. Great note explaining what I'm looking at. Very good sharpness, detail, exposure, DOF, & color.
Very well done.

Beautiful shot, very nice and soft lightning, I believe near sunset. It gives warm tones and add tremendous mood to the scene. Incredibly sharp. Congrats on this exquisite shot. TFS.

What a great family scene, Jose.
Fantastic poses and POV.
Very interesting notes.
TFS. : )

Hi, Jose.
Nice shot of this deer family! Full of life with wonderful expression. Good composition and quality.

Hi Luis

Excellent timing. Nice trio we have here. I like the earthy tones and the quality of the shot. TFS.

Brilliant composition that shows the whole family.
The fur in the corner (right and below) is a little nit.
See workshop.

Buena toma José Luis, muy buena de este ciervito enamorao de todas sus hembritas...
Un gran momento el que vivisteís, y no me quejo de las afotos..... son reflexiones.... pensamientos... explicaciones sobre fotografía, si en la foto del abejaruco con gran angular decía que se podían hacer fotos buenas sin grandes equipos, en esta trataba de explicar que hay veces que con estos superteles también pueden tener su "desventaja". Lo que no quiere decir que sean malos, es una pasada ya lo probarás, pero si lo pruebas no quiero que sea eso un motivo de "divorcio" y es que si lo pruebas repites.....
Un abrazote
